4 stars Not my favourite Who album by any means but without doubt one of the most influential double album " Soundtracks' ever to be released. Many people identified with this album growing up and still I hear it fondly mentioned to or reffered to as a bygone classic. The film became something of a cult classic too. Elton John in high heels doing the pinball wizard.....! to name just one episode. Musically the material is great with Peter Townsend IMHO being the mastermind behind Tommy. This became a benchmark work that many bands to follow desperately tried to match. Few succeeded. Whilst films were not always done of similar offerings from other Groups . THE LLDOB' by Genesis and ' The Wall ' ( film duly released) by The Pink Floyd. These much more superior in my opinion. Tommy though was and still is to this day an essential classic.
